USA vs Greece 8am EST

***SPOILERS INSIDE***
(could a mod add that in the title perhaps, sorry)

This is the "Redeem Team's" chance to actually redeem themselves

My early prediction is that it won't be close. The US knows that Greece beat the US team before. I expect them to be up for this game like they were against China

I expect USA to take revenge on Greece start off strong

Go Team USA!

LAcowBOMBER

US is playing really sloppy. CP3 should be taking the ball up and controling the game.

Brooke

they are starting off very sluggish. Not good

LAcowBOMBER
08-14-2008, 08:15 AM
They seem to be getting motivated. Its a shame it taking the whole quarter though

grkmaster

Does any one else hate the rule where you are allowed to touch the ball above the rim while it still has a shot of rolling back in? Its so frustrating!

grkmaster
08-14-2008, 08:31 AM
Dwayne and Kobe have been playing crazy well together

Brooke
08-14-2008, 08:31 AM

LAcowBOMBER
08-14-2008, 08:31 AM
Kobe and Wade need to just take over

Thank you!

LBJ had a nice line today. So did Wade & Bosh.

LAcowBOMBER

Yea Kobe did too

I think Jason Kidd is trying to go through the entire Olympics without attempting a FG.

That has to be unprecendented for a player who starts every game.

LAcowBOMBER
08-14-2008, 09:59 AM
Hahaha, he shouldn't be starting. Paul is a much better option.

IndiansFan337

Team USA avenged their 2006 loss to Greece with a 92-69 victory on Thursday, led by 17 points from Dwyane Wade and 18 points each from Chris Bosh and Kobe Bryant.

Wade's triumphant Olympic run continues, and nobody is questioning the health of his knee and shoulder any more. Carlos Boozer and Dwight Howard attempted a combined three field goals, but their offense wasn't needed -- the U.S. played stifling defense and opened up a 19-point lead in the first half. LeBron James had a great all-around game (13 points, eight rebounds, six assists, three blocks), Carmelo Anthony had another sub-par game (2-of-5 shooting), and Jason Kidd still has not attempted a field goal in the Olympics.

What time did you wake up?

Anyways, I feel bad for V-Span. He had to matchup with LeBron, which is a total mismatch against him :(

8:30-9, I read the game started at 8 so I figured it would be in the 2nd quarter.

It's 8 EST.

Anyways there was a replay of the 2nd half in the NBC Basketball Channel a while ago.

Dwyane Wade and Lebron James played a hell of a game, once again. Kobe Bryant improved his shooting touch and Carmelo Anthony played better than his previous games. Chris Bosh really came up big for team USA though, I hate it when the commentators mention Chris Bosh not being strong enough to play against other teams, to me that is total BS. I feel that he can play against any Center in the world.

Greece didn't play that bad at all. I expected baby shaq to play much better than what he did today. V-Span and Popalukas were by far the best players in the Greek team today. V-Span can enter the NBA any time he wants, but Popalukas just made a name for himself today and made himself be known.

Anyone have a video of the highlights? I checked YouTube and couldn't find any:(

Also if anyone knows where the video of that weight lifter dislocating their arm (or something like that) is I'd like to see it :clap:

Thanks :)

Everything's been delayed 3 hours for me on the west coast though, why would this be any different?

The only delayed games on the West Coast are the Saturday games (vs. China and vs. Spain) so if you're watching Saturday's game on NBC, it will be delayed until 10:30 AM.

If you have NBC Basketball Channel though, I think they'll show it live. Not quite sure yet.

I dont see any highlights, just a verbal recap of the game. you know where the highlights are?

JWalk126
08-15-2008, 01:05 AM
oh, I thought they'd have highlights

I guess since NBC has the rights for the games, it must also be for the highlights

my best guess would be to try nbcolympics.com (even though you cant watch live, you can probably see highlights)

if I find anything later, I'll post it
